CBM has launched the book on December 7, 2016, at the European Parliament in Brussels as part of the European Disability and Development Week (EDDW). This is the second book in CBM’s publication series on disability-inclusive development (DID). Can governments and other development actors afford to continue excluding women, men, girls, and boys with disabilities? How can investment in inclusion benefit persons with disabilities, their families and society as a whole? This publication addresses these questions and challenges the commonly held perception that DID interventions are financially unfeasible or are too difficult to achieve, particularly in low-income countries.
